Composite-beam ? A useful construction program for structural analysis

Dlubal Software develops composite-beam, a useful construction program for structural analysis. The software will run on windows platform.

It is used to create the design of composite beams adhering to ENV 1994-1-1:1992-10.

The program is originated on the basis of bidirectional communication among RSTAB and the add-on modules. In order to apply COMPOSITE-BEAM (stand-alone operation is possible), an RSTAB is not required.

Composite-beam offers the following features :-

? Single-span and continuous beams with finite boundary conditions
? Specify effective cross-sections automatically
? Provide free construction supports for construction phase
? Free description of concentrated, linear and linearly variable loads as fixed and variable loads along with specification of concrete age on loading

? Freely determinable construction loads and moving construction loads
? Find load combination automatically
? Computation of cross-section properties following Method 1 or 2
? Work out elastic internal forces with RSTAB
? Reallocation of moments
? Design of bending and shear force resistance with interaction
? Find out necessary shear connectors and their distribution
? Design of longitudinal shear force resistance

? Results of governing support reactions for construction and composite stage together with loads of construction supports
? Lateral-torsional buckling analysis
? Analysis for limitation of crack widths
? Design of natural frequency
